Lots of action on the aptly named Raptor Trail at Centennial Beach in Delta, BC, today.

Mallard mom and ducklings
Nothing like catching a few rays on the roof : -)
Had a two-hour walk along Fraser Foreshore Park in south Burnaby, BC. Lots of birds and buds, and another derelict boat.
Great Blue Heron
Catching a crayfish
Crow with, I think, a wee fish
Deathly still life
Fraser River is running high
Another derelict boat at the mouth of Byrne Creek. For some reason there have been a few here over the last year or two.
I spotted this gull near Granville Island in Vancouver today. It appeared to have tried to swallow a sea star whole. I hope it’s OK. I offered to pull it out but the gull wasn’t having any of that. . .
The Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver was giving a presentation to the Anmore Garden Club, and I thought I’d head out early and spend some time at Belcarra Regional Park.
Cute Canada Goose family:
Sockeye sandwich with mixed vegetables
It’s in the high 20s here in the lower mainland of BC, so I beat the heat by wandering the Nitobe Memorial Garden at UBC for an hour or two.
Yumi and I walked the Pitt River Greenway in Pitt Meadows, BC, for a couple of hours today, starting from Harris Landing and heading past the airport and back, and then east and back. Lovely day!
Lovely morning with lots of wildlife at Deer Lake in Burnaby, BC, today.
Canada Goose goslings
The parents are very protective
Mallard Mom taking the kids for a stroll
She was snacking on dandelions along the way
Caught this Great Blue Heron in flight heading home to the Deer Lake colony with material to repair a nest
Hummer coming in for a landing. These wee birds are very territorial, and once you spot them, you can be nearly assured of seeing them using the same perches
Frog at Deer Lake. Good ‘un or bad ‘un?
Had a long walk both west and east from Byrne Road along the Fraser this afternoon. Lots to see and photograph. One advantage to having aching knees is that you slow down and see more. . .
Bald Eagle caught in a tractor beam : -)
Lots of Great Blue Herons
I like moths as long as they’re not in my suit closet ;-).
Found this snail on the sidewalk, so I moved it to a safer place.
